Obstructive Sleep Apnoea has long been seen as a male health condition, with most estimates putting its prevalence twice as high in men as in women. However, OSA in women is now being increasingly recognised. One study suggested that up to 50% of women may have the condition to some degree, showing that it is not as uncommon as first thought.
As a result, CPAP manufacturers are realising that women need CPAP masks, too. For many years, despite having significantly different facial shapes compared to men, women have had to make do with CPAP masks predominantly designed for male users. Fortunately, there are now increasing numbers of masks designed specifically for women.
Whether you're a woman looking for a full face, nasal cushion or nasal pillows mask, there are options designed to cater for your needs. You can browse our range here, which will continue to grow. And of course, if none take your fancy, then you can continue to use a regular CPAP mask if you wish - finally you have a real choice when it comes to CPAP!
